This chapter identifies the emergence of ideas about a good life in policy. It tries to deconstruct some of the theoretical and conceptual perspectives that have framed the search for a good life. The discussion is particularly concerned with the values that lie behind each of these conceptualisations and their connections to the ideas of what makes a good life. The chapter also looks at the contributions of some key theories to current policy.

Keywords:   ideas, current policy, theoretical perspectives, conceptual perspectives, contributions, key theories
